Planetary Invocations #6 – Mercury

Another invocation taken from the Greek Magical Papyri, specifically to Hermes. As before, the words in BOLD CAPITALS should be vibrated.

Mercury (Hermes)

Hermes, lord of the world, who’re in the heart,
O Circle of Selene, spherical
And square, the founder of the words of speech,
With golden sandals, turning airy course
Beneath earth’s depth, who hold the spirit’s reins,
The sun’s and who with lamps of gods immortal 
Give joy to those beneath earth’s depts, to mortals
Who’ve finished life. The Moirai’s fatal thread
And Dream divine you’re said to be, who send
Forth Oracles by day and night, you cure
Pains of all mortals with your healing cares.
Hither, O blessed one, O mighty son
Of the goddess who brings full mental powers,
By your own form and gracious mind. And to
Me, NN, a pious man, reveal a sign
And send him your true skill of prophecy.

    Hello

    I was wondering were I could find more information on “OIOSENMIGADON ORTHO BAUBO NIOERE
    KODERETH DOSERE SYRE SUROE
    SANKISTE DODEKAISTE AKROUROBORE
    KODERE RINOTON KOUMETANA
    ROUBITHA NOUMILA PERPHEROU AROUORER AROUER”? Maybe what the words mean and how to pronounce them?

    Thank you

    • Hans Dieter Betz did a thorough job of translating all the Greek & Demotic in the original incantation, so if it is left untranslated it would appear to be a classic case of “Barbarous Names of Evocation.”

    Do you have the pronunciations by chance?
